Five moments that mattered


Jan Serfontein scored the Bulls only try of the match Jan Serfontein scored the Bulls only try of the match

The key moments from the Vodacom Super Rugby match between the Bulls and Lions at Loftus, according to SIMON BORCHARDT.

5th minute – Jacques-Louis Potgieter kicks in behind the Lions' defence. JJ Engelbrecht and Jan Serfontein try to collect the ball but knock it forward.

13th minute – With the Bulls leading 6-0 after two Potgieter penalties, Stefan Watermeyer charges down Jürgen Visser's clearance kick and scores a try that edges the Lions in front.

24th minute – The Bulls counter-attack from inside their half with Engelbrecht putting Bjorn Basson into space. He breaks away down the left touchline before passing back inside to Serfontein, whose try makes it 13-7.

40th minute – With the Bulls leading 19-10 and time up in the first half, Marnitz Boshoff misses his first goal kick of the season when his penalty hits an upright.

74th minute – Potgieter kicks his fifth penalty to give the Bulls a 15-point lead, which means Willie Wepener's subsequent try for the Lions is just a consolation.
